After The Supermoon, Came The Supertide

Many locations along the UK, US and Australian coasts will experience their highest tides for tens of years around September 29 or 30. Coastal roads in Miami, for instance, have already been closed in anticipation of exceptional tides.

These Guys Doing Crazy Tricks On A Slackline Follow Different Rules Of Gravity

I don’t know what planet these guys are from but it’s certainly not Earth because they don’t follow the very simple laws of gravity and break the concept of balance and destroy the very idea of time. They can jump on and off a slackline like it’s nothing and even do ridiculous tricks normal people couldn’t pull off if they could fly.

These Cards Look Like They're Floating On Their Own And Destroying Gravity

Video: Zach Mueller has mastered the art of cardistry and in doing so probably destroyed the laws of gravity. The Fontaine cards he’s using seem to have a mind of their own with special rules that don’t apply to other objects on this planet. It’s not so much that his hands are controlling the card but the card is controlling his hands. Cool trick!

Space Makes Things That Are Spinning Act Completely Crazy

Being in zero gravity has to be a never ending amount of fun. Everything that you boringly do in your normal life, all the things you don’t bother to look twice at — they all become instantly more interesting because you have no idea what’s going to happen. Just check this spinning T-handle in zero gravity, it spins one way and then reverses and spins the other way and then just goes crazy.

Car Driving In A Loop Inside A Death Cage Ball Just Ignores Gravity

Video: Well, this looks fun! The cage stands at about 12m tall and is the biggest of its kind in the world, and yet the crazy car inside just drives in a vertical loop over and over again like it’s on a normal road that doesn’t go freaking upside down. It’s got to get a little dizzying in there.

Every Satellite Got Into Space Thanks To Newton's Law Of Gravitation

What goes up must come down — though not always in the way you’d expect. This is Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation, and you can thank it for GPS, Google Earth and even the pictures beamed back from the other side of the Solar System. Here’s why.

Awesome Video Shows What It Must Be Like To Control And Break Gravity

Can you imagine if you had a knob you can turn to sway gravity whichever way you like it? Clemen Wirth’s imaginative experimental video, Gravity, just does that. Water can be poured upwards, paint can drip sideways, flying balloons can fly down and the whole world can be bent in any shape you want. It’d be such a cool superpower to have.

Why This Astronaut Thinks NASA Can Save Humanity From Extinction

Astronaut Daniel T. Barry thinks NASA’s mission to Mars is humanity’s most important endeavour yet, for reasons including the birth of Captain Kirk. We talked to him about what it’s like to explore the Final Frontier.

Watch A Feather And A Bowling Ball Fall At The Exact Same Speed

To this day, I’ve never felt dumber than when elementary school me thought that 100 pounds of bowling balls would fall faster than 100 pounds of feathers. I was a fool and I’ll never forget it. This video doesn’t show that riddle in action but something even cooler: how things fall at the same rate inside the world’s largest vacuum chamber.

Antarctica Is Losing So Much Ice It's Throwing Off Earth's Gravity

Rising sea levels inundating coastal cities are the least of our global warming problems. According to a new report by the European Space Agency, the loss of snowpack along the antarctic ice shelf is throwing off Earth’s gravitational field. Yeah, pretty sure that’s bad.
